Lyrics: Leaving her home
Early that morn
With her heart bruised, tender and torn
For her dear Savior was crucified
Jesus her friend has died
Slowly she goes
To where He lay
Deep in the tomb
Darkened from day
The tomb is open
He is not there
She finds the tomb is bare
With tears in her eyes
She begs the man,
Tell me where is He?
With tenderness he replies
Mary, Mary
Mary looks up
This is no stranger
She sees the face
Of her dear Savior
Joy fills her heart
Joy fills her soul
She is the first to know
She's the first to know
That He lives
Mary knows He lives
